Veitch, Eldridge R.
a minister in the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, was born in Alexandria, Va., in 1810. Nothing definite remains: concerning his education, conversion, or call to the ministry. In 1831 he entered the traveling connection in the Baltimore Conference, and for thirty-seven years led a devoted, arduous life, dying Feb. 10, 1867. Mr. Veitch was sound and forcible in doctrine as a preacher, original in thought and expression. As a counselor he was wise, able, and safe. See Minutes of Annual Conferences, M.E. Church, South, 1867, p. 97.
